In a major boost to Qatar’s efforts to achieve water security, Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) has announced to launch the Water Security Mega Reservoirs Project at the pumping stations in Umm Salal area on December 11.
The QR14.5 billion project is being implemented in five regions of the country including in Umm Salal, Al Thumama, Rawdat Rashed and Umm Biraka. The implementation of the mega project started in May 2015.
Currently, the total capacity of the project is 960 million gallons of water, which will reach 2300 million gallons at the end of its first phase. This capacity will increase with the completion of all phases.
There are a total of 15 tanks with a capacity of 100 million gallons per tank.
The Water Security Mega Reservoirs Project is one of the largest of its kind in the world. The mega reservoirs are being built along with integrated pumping stations including more than 650 km of interconnecting water pipelines.
The Deputy Amir HH Sheikh Abdullah bin Hamad al Thani launched the first phase of water pumping of the strategic mega reservoirs project in Al Thamama last July.
The project is part of the state’s plans and efforts to increase the strategic water storage and meet water needs in all areas.
It is considered the backbone of the water security in the state in line with Qatar National Vision 2030 and Kahramaa mission of providing high quality and sustainable electricity and water for better living in Qatar.
